LOCAL BAND: QUITO, ECUADOR: MUNN

I'm back with another local Ecaudorian band from the alternative music scene. This band is called MUNN. This band formed in 2008 in Quito, Ecuador. 

This band is influenced by the TRIP HOP genre of the 90s (Massive Attack, Portishead), downtempo and electronica. Their first album is called Espirales and it came out in 2012. This followed with a video for the song “En la oscuridad” At the beginning of 2104 MUNN have been a part of the most important festivals in Ecuador.

In March of the same year, they pend 4 days in an area filled with open nature as use of their recording studio. They record new songs. This results in a new album called AQUI / AHORA. They are in the process of recording their third album.

If you live in Ecuador, don’t miss the chance to check this band out. Band members are:

Mariela Espinosa

Pablo Molina

Miguel Angel Espinosa

One of my favorite holidays (apart from Thanksgiving and Christmas) is Halloween!!!! It is celebrated on October 31st and what I intend to do for theses
entries is fill you in with the facts,information and traditions of this spooky holiday. SO HERE GOES!!!!




Halloween has it's roots in the Celtic Festival of Samhian and the Christian holy day of All Saints Day. Irish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America during Ireland's Great Famine of 1846.




Uno de mis dias festivos favoritos (Dia de acion de gracias y Navidad aparte) es Halloween (Noche de Brujas) Es celebrado el dia 31 de octubre. Lo que voy a intentar es darles informacion y tradiciones sobre este dia espantoso. Entonces aqui va.

Halloween (Noche de Brujas tiene sus raices de la cultura celta en un festival llamado Samhain y de el dia cristiano Dia de los Muertos. La fiesta fue exportada a los Estados Unidos por emigrantes irlandeses en el año 1846.

The Discreet Charm Of Morrissey

Age shouldn't affect you. It's just like the size of your shoes - they don't determine how you live your life! You're either marvelous or you're boring, regardless of your age.
